Weeknight Slow Cooker Chuck Roast

Sharing is caring!

I love my weeknight chuck roast that cooks all day in the slow cooker. Just season and add to your slow cooker and when you come home dinner is waiting! All you need to do is add your favorite sides; most of them can also be made in advance.


  • 1 (4 pound) beef chuck roast
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 yellow onions, quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic, or more to taste
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs thyme, chopped


Season beef chuck roast with sea salt and black pepper; put into the crock of a slow cooker with onion quarters and garlic cloves. Pour beef broth and vegetable broth over the roast. Lay bay leaves and thyme atop the roast.

Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours.
